White House Being Vindictive

It's bad enough that we're going through a government shutdown without the White House being vindictive.  It seems that they're shuttering private companies who pay rent to manage concessions on Federal Lands.  As PJMedia reports:
However, today, we have been told by senior member of the US Forest Service and Department of Agriculture that people “above the department”, which I presume means the White House, plan to order the Forest Service to needlessly and illegally close all private operations. I can only assume their intention is to artificially increase the cost of the shutdown as some sort of political ploy.
It seems that Mr. Meyer runs a company that operates campgrounds on US Forest Service and Dept Agriculture.  Not only does he not cost the government anything, he pays rents to the Treasury.  It's mean-spirited, it's vindictive, and it makes no sense.  But, there is politics involved and the White House wants to make it as painful as possible.

Which do we have in the White House, a president or a vicious, snotty, vindictive, immature, egomaniacial, self entitled brat?

See my post on the Gun Counter forum about Kisatchie, squirrel hunting this weekend, and testicular fortitude in the NPSO.

On I-84 last night, saw hunters coming back early, as the use of ATVs on all forest roads was just banned.
